This is a previously owned Wedge model SG mouthpiece with a Euro shank. The mouthpiece is in excellent condition with no blemishes or dents short of insertion marks on the shank. Please read the description below or visit the manufacturer's webpage for more information:
The Wedge tuba mouthpiece line was developed with the assistance of Sasha Johnson of the National Ballet Orchestra of Canada. The SG is based on a Schilke Geib mouthpiece with slight modifications to the cup and a Wedge rim. It has a slightly more bowl shaped cup than the H2 and is designed to work especially well on rotary instruments. The SG retains a very similar feel to the Schilke, but provides improved core and clarity in the sound along with a more even response in all registers and better flexibility. The SG is available with the usual American shank or the larger European shank used on some larger instruments.
Wedge G mouthpieces have a Geib style cup similar to the Schilke Geib, Bach 7, Bach 12, and Yamaha 67C4 mouthpieces. The cup shape is a modified funnel, which is slightly more bowl shaped than a Helleberg style cup. The Geib cup sounds is less dark than a Helleberg cup, with a bit more projection.
ID: 1.30 inches at .05 inches into the cup (33.02 mm)
